My guess is that i'm modifying the wrong file here but i can't figure out what the solution is. I recently installed ubuntu linux and Apache/MysQL/Php. Apache is working, and so is Mysql, but i can't seem to get the php.ini file to have any effect.
I've created a file called phpinfo in my root directory with the phpinfo() command in it. according to this page my php.ini file is located here: /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini This was very odd to me as there was in fact no file at this location at all called php.ini. So what i did was search through all the directories until i found the php.ini-production file which came with my php install and copied that file to the appropriate location.
In order to test to see if it was in fact working i tried to set the 'display_errors' parameter to On (it was off previously according to phpinfo) but it has no effect. pretty sure i'm adding it correct, the line looks exactly like this:
display_errors = On
What am i doing wrong?
